Before your sprint triathlon
The objective of this preparation period is to ensure that your energy and water reserves are
fully replenished before you start your triathlon.
- D-3: increase your carbohydrate intake by taking Maltodextrin (1 to 2 cans
a day). Increase your water intake. Reduce your consumption of raw vegetables, especially
if you have delicate intestines.
- The day before: your evening meal should contain easily digestible carbohydrates that
are low in fibre. E.g.: a soup of seasonal vegetables, chicken breast, pasta
(serve with 1 soup spoon of oil and a little turmeric. Turmeric works an excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory thanks to its main pigment: curcumin. In other words, this spice can be really useful for athletes.), stewed fruit.
- 3 hours before: your breakfast must replenish your energy reserves after the night's fast and
re-establish the right hydration balance. You should choose easily digestible foods. E.g.: Water or fruit
juice, energy cake or energy cream, stewed fruit.
- Standby rations: the aim of this period is to keep blood sugar at an optimal level and keep
hydrated while avoiding postprandial hypoglycaemia. The pre-race drink
is ideal for this period.
